Kick start the 2020 running season with the Brighton Half Marathon and take on 13.1 miles all in the name of charity!

The event is one of the first major half’s in the running calendar and now one of the most popular races in the UK. The race starts and finishes along Madeira Drive with a route that is mainly flat. Enjoy all of the fantastic landmarks that Brighton and Hove has to offer!

The Brighton Half Marathon celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2020, so join the Rockinghorse running team to be part of this memorable occasion.

How will we support you?

We will provide you with Rockinghorse fundraising materials including a running vest or t-shirt to help you with your fundraising. On the day there will be a Rockinghorse cheering team along the race route, where our runners can top up on snacks and drinks.

You’ll also receive support from our dedicated Challenge Events Fundraising Manager, who will be able to advise you how to maximise your sponsorship.

How does the money you raise support us?

Our Brighton Half Marathon runners raised almost £11,000 in 2019. Their fundraising has directly contributed to the Rockinghorse Activities Programme at Chalkhill Child and Adolescent Mental Health Unit. To find out more about this project, please click here.

Here at Rockinghorse, we raise money to support sick and disadvantaged children in Sussex. We are best known for our work with the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital in Brighton, and the neighbouring Trevor Mann Baby Unit.

Our charity also provides support to many other hospitals, children’s centres and paediatric services across Sussex. To find out more about the projects we’re currently fundraising for, please click here.
